Wicky Hassan, Co-Founder Miss Sixty dies at 56

Cancer has claimed the life of Miss Sixty co-founder and creative director Wichy Hassan, who passed away December 16 at the age of 56, Women's Wear Daily reports.

Hassan will be remembered as a driving force in creating jeans designed for a woman's curves.
"He always had a smile on his face and was extremely professional,” Diesel chief Renzo Rosso, a longtime friend, tells WWD.

“There was never any tension or competition between us in all these years. It’s a big loss for the fashion world, we will all miss him.”

Described by Elio Fiorucci as "the soul of Miss Sixty," which he co-founded in 1989, Hassan was a Libyan refugee who worked as an artist before turning to fashion.

The future of Sixty SpA is now uncertain, as a production and distribution partnership with Chinese manufacturer Trendiano Co. Ltd. was announced just before Hassan's death.
